The Hard Nut returns home to BAM this holiday season.

A cascade of wit and wintry beauty featuring Morris’ lyrical modern dance choreography, this lavish, gender-bent love letter to a classic transplants the story from the straight-laced 1890s to the swinging 70s, with raucous parties, dancing G.I. Joes, whimsical costumes, and a Waltz of the Snowflakes like no other. Tchaikovsky’s complete original score, performed live by the 53-piece MMDG Music Ensemble drives this colorful retelling, which playfully preserves the warm spirit of an essential holiday tradition.


Based on the book by E.T.A. Hoffman, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King
Featuring the MMDG Music Ensemble and The Hard Nut Singers 
Music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker, Op. 71

Set design by Adrianne Lobel
Costume design by Martin Pakledinaz
